Sony Offers First Look At Playstation 3 Chip

Sony, IBM and Toshiba released some data about the new processor that will power the next generation Playstation 3. The new gaming machine isn’t expected until 2006, but prototype models will be released to developers early next year for their work on games to be available at the product’s launch.

The Cell processor looks like it will be a doozy. IBM will manufacture the chip, which will also be available in high end computers and digital televisions.
